16164.143      Levi 8 BIGELOW, son of Ransom 7 (Levi 6 , Nathan 5, John 4, Joshua 3, Joshua 2, John 1), and Laura (BUTTERFIELD) BIGELOW, was born at Crown Point, Essex co, NY on 14 August 1835  and married (1) 07 November 1858 Orra Ann Orinda Davis who died 1909 at Port Henry, NY.  He married (2) in 1914 Lucy Adeline Nichols - his cousin.  She was always known as L. Adda.  In addition to Levi's three children, he also raised brother Orville's son, Norman.  Levi died at San Diego, CA in 1915 wrong.  This is in direct conflict with another record in our files that shows Levi to have died at Port Henry, NY where he was a sawmill owner and that date to be 26 October 1898 wrong (see stone above).  This needs substantiating as second marriage was in 1914.  His second wife died at Nashville, MI 11 September 1920.

Bigelow Society record; Anna Marie LaChance, Bigelow Reunion in August, 2001 at Springfield, MO, gave the Society marriage, birth and death records for this family of Port Henry, Moriah and Crown Point, NY.
Note:  Marriage record from Anna Marie LaChance of Fort Smith, Arkansas,
gives Levi's wife's name as Aria Ann Davis (not Ann Orinda).  Which is correct.
